9:02 am
feet out here and it will only get worse. we are her a hurricane watch here in ocean city, although earl is expected to pass close off shore. we're still going to get pounded with high winds and heavy surf. we're looking at waves later today at 12 up to 15 feet. right now life guards are not out on the beaches but they will be shortly. yesterday they had restrictions as far as how far people could go into the water -- knee deep or less and that was it. and as the storm moves in, they are telling people to stay out of the water, especially during the storm. the storm is expected to hit sometime overnight and in the early morning hours of friday, that should be the worst of the storm and then it is expected to quickly pass. and they have been preparing for the last few days and for the most part people are going to weather the storm. >> it's getting rougher and rougher. we know what is coming. and i think everybody -- a lot of people are coming down to
9:03 am
watch it. we're waiting it out. i'm going to tack all of my furniture off of my porch and doing the same thing for my neighbors and sit back and cross my fingers and hope everything goes well. >> reporter: and she has some good advice there. they are telling people take everything off your porches. anything that could become a projectile could come through a window. and i am standing next to the sea wall. they have gates here rand they'll close those to protect from a storm surge. they are not evacuating here at ocean city, maryland. and when i talked to the mayor, he said emergency officials are meeting at 1:00 to re-evaluate the situation but even then it's too late to order an evacuation because you simply couldn't get everybody out. >> i know they are watching it
9:04 am
carefully there, sherry. thanks a lot. again both maryland and virginia have declared states of emergency as hurricane earl joins us. joining us live bill speeler. i know a state of emergency has been declared as a precaution. tell us what this entails and why it has been enacted. >> the governor declared it to start prepositioning our resources and personnel. we were able to activate some of the national guard troops and are repositioning them for any post storm clean-up and moved additional state troopers down toward the ramp ton roads area, eastern part of virginia just to be ready just in case. >> and i know this also means that a lot of different agencies, if you will, come together. tell us how some of the agencies work together, bob? >> we have the virginia emergency operation center. we bring representatives from various state agencies to work
9:05 am
as a team to help respond and assist the localities that are directly responding to the effects of the storm. so if they need resources we look at the state devil to see what we have to exist. >> and right now there is -- this is minimal nature there and it could be finishy and change. what changes are you having residents do? >> well we're still keeping an eye on the storm and we're looking at 12 hours of tropical storm force winds in virginia and that's a concern of power outages along the eastern part of virginia so that's something we're definitely concerned about and keeping an eye on. >> as far as the virginia beach area, it's a big weekend, labor day weekend is here, what about the folks on the beaches and what are you telling them? >> we're telling them to keep an eye on the storm. the local governments will be issuing any orders for any protections that they might have to do. but right now we are looking at strong winds along there and
9:06 am
the potential power outages. but the good news is that the storm will move out of here quickly and friday and this weekend should be clear and nice and sunny. >> thank you for joining us. and the other big story this morning. police are still on the scene of the discovery channel building in downtown silver spring where a man stormed the place yesterday afternoon and took hostages before he was shot and killed by police. we're told authorities have been combing the building all morning in search of explosives or material left behind by the gunman james lee. sarah simmons has been there and she joins us with the latest development. sarah, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gurvir. police are still here on the scene. fire and ems left after they did their sweep of the building and did discover three out of the four packages that they claim that the alleged gunman jays j lee left behind in the lobby, three of the -- four of
9:07 am
them they did disrupt, they called it. and they do believe that packages did come inside with him. they did finish that sweep here a couple of hours ago but again police are still on the scene here. though we're expecting to see morefully employees starting to -- more employees starting to show up around 10:00 a.m. and they will open from 10:00 to 1:00 for employees to come inside and gather their things or cars or anything they have left behind and they will have counselors on hand for anyone who feels the need to talk with somebody. now police are still holding the lobby as part of their investigation. of course they swept through there earlier this morning. james j lee, the lobby is where he is believed to have strapped the explosive to his body and hold three hostages while 1900 employees and people in the day care were evacuated. police spent hours negotiating
9:08 am
with the gunman. in montgomery county, police chief tom manger spoke about how they were watching the gunman the whole time. take a look at what he to say earlier on fox 5 morning news. >> he had in his hand what appeared to be a switch that had a little wire coming from it, so we were concerned about him having some radio controlled switch to an explosive. we watched him take a pin out of the switch and take it out a couple of times. we can see and hear him from the position our team had. they heard -- we saw the hostages move. we saw -- heard him shout and then heard a pop. we're still trying to determine whether he fired his weapon or whether that was him detonating one of the devices on his person. but at that instant, our folks came around and confronted him and he turned to them with his gun out and it w point that the officers fired
9:09 am
at him. >> reporter: and we'll continue to follow the investigation and have the latest coming up on fox 5 news at 5:00. back to you. >> sarah, thank. we know the gunman james lee had a long-standing beef with the discovery communications corporation. he posted some of his writings on he said stop all shows glorifying birthing on your channels but what drove him over the edge. dr. lisa van sustern joins us now to weigh in on this sort of strange case. good morning to you. >> good morning, allison. >> some of the earlier reports were that he might be an ex employee. because that's what you normally hear. and then it turns out he wanted like the kate plus 8 shows off of the air. is this strange? >> yes. but he found a cause, which he may have legitimately been interested in and over time it
9:10 am
became less about the cause and more about a vehicle to express his turmoil and ultimately it was completely about his disorder and in stability. >> now he had been out there -- and in some accounts with two years. he once threw out a bunch of cash and he was arrested for that because it was considered littering. and what is in the mind of someone who has all of that emotion? >> people who don't want to get help for their mental illness or increasing stability, they reject medication and their families. and they have to explain it some way and they have to find and adopt some theme around which to express that. but in his case it was
9:11 am
environmentalism and this was his case. >> and it always seems like they have the manifestos. what do you take from this? >> it's dilutions of grandeur. he thinks he's so important he'll get discovery channel to change programming. obviously very incoherent. while there were things that were worthy of note on science of environmental issues but it also becomes threats of random violence. but it's easy to see what something should have gone from a concern to something totally incoherent. >> and we're hearing about this my ishmael and al gore's cause and do we see that often, they attach themselves to legitimate things? >> well you can, because what will happen is people feel and he is the one that felt like the loner. that's the usual profile. and they try to find some cause
9:12 am
that redeems them. theyin turnally feel like scum bags themself. they have no self worth. and if they can express something they do know how eyes worth this will val sath and redeem them. >> we've seen career protestors but to go in and storm the building and do this, how is this leap made? >> this is what happens. it started off mostly being about the cause and as it progresses the cause gets flushed through a disordered mind and becomes an opportunity to express internal turmoil and then finally it's only about the internal turmoil. so somewhere along the spectrum, you could see many more people. >> i have many more questions but we have to leave that here. greta van susteren, thank you very much. a cancer research here coming up next on fox 5. we'll

9:18 am
when you hear something like that. prior to her having seizures, were there any signs that she was having trouble? what was she like? >> she was introverted. she was careful who she took in. she wrote a lot and took pictures. a big artist. and in fact i have a lot of her -- she wrote a lot of journals and a lot of them i didn't discover until after she passed away. so one day, i hope to publish them. >> so when you heard that it was cancer, that's the kind of thing you just don't think will happen to you? >> no. and i had no idea how rampant childhood cancer was. i knew about leukemia, but i didn't know little kids and teen-agers were getting brain cancer and some of the osteo sarc onlias that you associate with adults. so it was a shock.
9:19 am
>> you don't -- i don't get the sense you're an activist. so what happened here? this is a such a traumatic event for your family. is that what spurred you forward to do something? >> well i mean ever since she passed away, i've slowly be surely become more and more of an activist. i've started some foundation and done a lot to bring awareness to childhood cancer and pediatric brain cancer. and i heard about the moms in the cancer community and a lot of us are doing our own thing to try to raise awareness and i said how can anybody not pay attention to 46 mothers going bald. and i thought this is my chance to make it big and scream to the world that we need to pay attention. >> heidi, what would you tell mothers out there who have

9:29 am
welcome back to fox 5 morning news at 9:29. and we're all watching the skies and walking around in our shorts at the same time. >> it's warm out there. temperatures pushing through the upper 70s and low 80s and
9:30 am
some of the high cloud as associated with earl starting to make it into the viewing area. so it won't be long. the good news is we'll get everything out of here late in the day tomorrow and that will set us up for a fantastic weekend. so we have to endure the next couple of days. and around here in the immediate washington area, that means sunshine and warm temperatures today. so let's get to the latest with earl, and that is a lot of hurricane watches and warnings and tropical storm watches and warnings. and it gets confusing, but in north carolina, the red you see, that is a hurricane warning. these are hurricane watches in blue, so that includes the lower eastern shore. ocean city under a hurricane watch and a storm warning at the same time. and why i'm showing you this, look it extended up into maine and then into canada. this will impact areas from the carolinas right up to canada during the day on friday,
9:31 am
starting later tonight in the carolinas. cloud cover pushing up toward the washington area. so we'll see high clouds associated with -- associated with earl this afternoon and that's why we're going with ms. conditions. earl very impressive. look at that. tried to obtain dry air but didn't have much success. we're hopeful this loses some strengths because right now winds are 145 miles per hour gusting to about 170. this is a very major gat gory four hurricane. and you can see it pushing off to the north, northwest at 18 miles per hour. the thinking is it will shift off to the northeast and parallel the coast during the overnight hours. want to talk about the wind, because what you have to remember about the storms is they are huge. and so the tropical force are about 230 miles away.
9:32 am
just becauser not in the center of the storm doesn't mean you'll have to deal with the impact but later tonight we look to have hurricane winds approaching the coast of north carolina. and i think the worst for ocean city, rehoboth beach, the winds and shifting off to the north and east. and as it weakens it will still likely be a category one hurricane as it approaches maritime late in the day on saturday. once we get it out of here, it will be a beautiful weekend stretching from nantucket. it should be nice once it clears the coast. we're 75 in gaithersburg. off it a very warm start. 82 in frederick and 88 in fredericksberg. our high temperatures, a cool degree cooler than yesterday. yesterday we were 97 and today
9:33 am
93. code orange air quality. we have a coastal flood advisory in addition to our other advisories as the wash gets pushed up ahead of the storm later this afternoon and tonight. and into the nighttime hours, more cloud cover around here and earl will pass through the south and east tomorrow. 91 degrees, saturday, sunday and monday, temperatures in the 80s. back to you at the desk. travelers are being advised not to travel to or from ocean city, maryland, during the height of the storm. >> mandatory evacuations aren't expected though. sherry ly is live in ocean city with an official from emergency services. >> good morning, allison and gurvir. we are under a hurricane watch as well as the tropical storm warning which means this area is going to get bounded with heavy winds and high surf and that is nothing to joke about. joining us is joe theo bald with the emergency services director for ocean city.
9:34 am
you look at this storm, it is a monster out there and how concerned are you as this storm starts to approach. >> our awareness has been heightened since we started tracking the storm a few days ago. our preparations are in place and have been for a number of days. our forecast is consistent and we have a lot of faith in the hurricane center and what they provide us but the message we're sending is tomorrow will be a lousy day. ocean city will be back in business on saturday. but come tomorrow night, ocean city is back to where it should be. >> reporter: we see people out here at the beach, but it doesn't look like anything i want to venture out in. they're talking about 12-15 feet waves throughout the day. what type of restrictions are we talking about for people out on the beach. >> this is only the beginning.
9:35 am
we're seeing -- considering putting some restrictions into play and they will have. and we have extra crews roaming the beach at night. and unless the life guards are out on the beach, don't go in the water. take some personal responsibility and again we're open for business come saturday. >> reporter: and this is a big weekend for you. are you seeing cancellations at the hotels with any of the rental agencies? what are you expecting as far as the tourists coming into town? >> my expectations is tail remain consistent with labor weekends for about a quarter of million people in town. we're not seeing that at this point in time. and we want the public to take in personal responsibilities. we're going to have the tropical storm force winds and see some elevated surf and rip currents and we'll have some minor issues that we'll have downtown. but come the end of month, the
9:36 am
sun may be shining. >> the maryland governor has declared a state of emergency but there are no evacuations at this point. and even if this hurricane could change course and come closer. >> is there any time? >> no. we rely on what the forecast provides us to make those decisions and at this time evacuations are not on the table. we want people to stay indoors and prepare their property today and stay out of the storm tomorrow. don't travel during it and in about a 12-hour period it will come up and pass us. >> reporter: thank you very much. joe theo bald from ocean city. they are prepared, they will have another meeting at 1:00 today to go over the game plan and check the course of hurricane earl. but at this point no evacuations. that's the latest here. back to you. >> sarah, thank you. more now on the big story

9:50 am
out, then put it up if a potting medium. everybody loves geraniums. and this is a great project for the girls. >> you think? >> yeah. they're young enough -- they're old enough, i should say, get started. and this time of year geraniums look peaked and what i like to do is take a cutting of the gerain jum and clean this up. make sure the cutting has no lower leaves, let it dry and let it sit for about a day. take that cutting and stick it right into your sand and then what you'll do is take a little plastic bag, put it over it, and within two weeks it's going to root out and then you guys can grow that out on the windowsill over the winter. >> love it. i'm going to try that. i'll let you know.
